Killjoys - Season 1 (2015) **spoilers**

Since nobody has started a thread about this show yet, it seems like a whole season thread should suffice.

I have to admit, I liked this show more than I thought I would. The budget is clearly very small, but I think they did a decent job with the effects and sets. Overall, I liked the pilot for this show more than the pilot for Dark Matter. What do you guys think?

I watched the first episode earlier this week. And I ended up creating a One Pass for it. Plus I figure I might as well watch it since it is sandwiched between Defiance and Dark Matter on Fridays. Plus not a bunch out to watch right now so I have space for some more shows to watch.

I liked it. Decent premise. Good effects, considering limited budget. The female lead is gorgeous!

This and Dark Matter almost feel like they're set in the same universe. But so far, so good.

I like it; better than Dark Matter, in fact.

Which begs the question - she's the lead character, so why does Verizon's show info (on the basic info page) show the cast as: "Aaron Ashmore, Luke MacFarlane"?

I'm deciding if I like her or the synth from "Humans" better, but since the actress playing the synth is closer to my age, I'll have to go with the synth. Hannah John-Kamen is only 25!!

I'm current on this show (just saw the third episode) and I'm really enjoying it a lot. It's firing on all cylinders for me.

There's something about the snappy dialog, combined with a fully realized universe that we are learning about in bits and pieces, that just works for me. Especially when combined with interesting characters and some decent fight choreography. Now it just needs to develop a larger story arc, which is where I assume things are going with the brother and his PTSD storyline.

Yes I am liking it more each week. It is certainly growing on me. But so is Dark matter. I look forward to watching Killjoys each Friday along with Defiance and Dark Matter. I am glad I decided to watch Killjoys.

It's been a long time since Sci-Fi Friday has been so, well, sci-fi!

I would be interested in the show but the captions appear for about 1 second then disappear before the words are even spoken. So it's hard to follow what's going on. Guess I'll have to call TWC and complain.

Thanks! Read through the thread. Looks like this might work for me, too as TWC is going all digital in my area. I will give it a try when I get back from vacation.

Just watched the first 2 episodes last night. Not a bad show. Like it pretty well so far. I also watch Defiance but not Dark Matter. Maybe I need to catch up on that one.

I am binging on it.

I love it! I am liking it a whole lot more than Dark Matter.

I had been saving them up to watch. Does anyone know the fate of this show? I mean, will there be a season two?

No renewal announcement, yet. There are only 10 episodes in the 1st season, so they're done for now.

I think this show and Dark Matter are both deserving of a season 2, it's the first time I've watched SyFi in a long time and enjoyed what I saw.

What are the ratings though? That will most likely be the biggest determining factor whether they get a second season. I guess that and the cost of the show.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. None of the effects were glaringly bad, characters were fun. Had a real sense of excitement in several episodes too.

Glad to hear they'll get to do more.

Darn, I switched providers in April and the new package does not have Space -- no Killjoys or Orphan Black or Dark Matter (still no idea, after a full season, why it was called Dark Matter). Might need to get me some magic.

1. The nature of Dark Matter is mysterious, just like the backgrounds of our amnesiac protagonists.

2. It sounds science-y.

3. It sounds noir.

Something like that, I'm guessing.

The brain has white matter and gray matter. The latter's function, among other things, is memory. The crew on Dark Matter has had their memories erased. Thus, Dark Matter. That's my theory.
